It's Friday, and in the National Football League that means it's injury report day. Both the Minnesota Vikings and Chicago Bears have released their final injury reports for this Sunday's contest in the Windy City. Let's take a look at who's banged up going into this one, starting with the visiting team.
Floyd will miss his second consecutive game with his leg issue, and there's no indication at this point as to how much longer he'll be out. Ellison is a surprise addition to the list, as he practiced on Wednesday but sat out Thursday and Friday. That probably means that Chase Ford will get his first activation of the season on Sunday afternoon. I assume that Johnson will start again in Floyd's place.
And now, on to the home team.
McPhee has been dealing with a shoulder injury for a few weeks now, but it hasn't stopped him from playing and it likely won't stop him on Sunday, either. Chicago has plenty of issues along the offensive line, and it will be interesting to see how they shuffle players around against the Vikings' front seven.
UPDATE: Per Bears' beat writer Adam Hoge, McPhee being on the injury report is not related to the shoulder injury he's been dealing with. My apologies for the error.
And that's a look at the injury report for both teams going into this Sunday's game, folks.
